1. Choose Location

Choosing the location for patchouli cultivation is quite simple. Just take note of the following requirements:

a) The most suitable location for patchouli cultivation should be about 50 to 400-metre-high above sea level (mdpl), in order for patchouli to have a high level of oil content and a good level of alcohol content.

b) Patchouli plant needs high and humid temperature.

c) A fully-grown patchouli requires enough sunlight so try to find a location that is not shielded by tall trees.

d) Choose a location that has fertile and crumbly soil, contains plenty of natural nutrient, and where the water is not stagnant in the area.
